Sebastian and I are going to share the writing of these next few posts. He wanted me to take the first turn so here I am. This is our Journey to Oz.
Of course, Sebastian was front and center all the way – navigating and alerting us to each and every hairpin ahead. We were excited that the weather was cooperative thus far. Not a tornado in sight!
We traveled along the Blue Ridge Parkway where we were awed by some amazing views. I have never seen Sebastian so quietly contemplative as when we were looking at the vast mountain scenery.
“So this is the way to Oz?” he asked.
“Yes, this is the way to Oz” I replied.
“It’s a twisty road, isn’t it?”
“Yes, Sebastian. It’s very twisty. Very twisty indeed.”
We stopped at this roadside market to take a picture
and to get some NC Mountain apples to eat along the way. It’s a long way to Oz and apples seemed fitting since Dorothy wanted to eat an apple on her way to Oz too.
“It seems like it takes a long time to get to there” Sebastian declared.
“Yes, Sebastian. It does take a long time. It’s taken me years just to get on the road to Oz.”
”I’m not sure what that means.”
”It’s okay Sebastian. Just hang in there. We’ll be there soon.”
To be continued next time when Sebastian will take up the story in Part 2.
